    Hi,

    Just wondering if anybody has a htpc in one room and a popcorn hour or similar device in another. If you watch something in one room via the htpc and the other half streams media via a popcorn would there be any noticeable issues ?

    Can open.... worms everywhere....

    Firstly it's not clear what you are saying, does the HTPC store the content?

    If so then only thing that's important is speed of HTPC, can it cope with streaming the bitrate of the file to the PCH whilst playing?

    If it's anything new I would say it wouldn't be a problem.
